Man - we have been super busy. And I don't even feel like I have anything to write and show for it! It seems like my days are filled with being a mother with toddlers, taking care of my house and all the responsibility that comes with that, helping other's in need, serving the community around me, activities in the church and social activities (which I love). I don't want to just list everything we've done b/c that's annoying - needless to say we have been packed busy!
I've been challenged so much with giving up of my time. Loving others in my life by giving as much as i can, unreservedly, unselfishly. But that comes with selfish feelings of being tired, wanting to just chill, doing what I want. What a battle inside my heart of giving to others of my resources and time to show Christ's love but also balanced with taking care of my family and my house. Our pastor's have been going through 1 John in our church services and I am challenged to show my faith by loving others in so many ways. Not judging others, assuming the best of everyone, giving of time and energy and money with no holding back. But after a couple weeks of seemingly every day doing something - I"M TIRED! Where is the balance???!??
|This Dazed look before church is exactly|
how we all feel around here. ha
If you have any helpful hints I'm interested in hearing how other's do it without just getting "TIRED" and feeling like not doing it anymore!
Or maybe it's ok to "take a break". Maybe it's ok to just chill and recharge. I think so :)
Anyways- all that to say - we're going on a trip! A fun trip to see my whole family! My parents, my sisters, my brother graduate, and my nephews. i cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!
|I'm a big list-maker. So I have a ton of lists|
I hope I don't forget anything
|weird storm came through and sucked our screen door in. We were locked inside|
